Get ready for festive fun as the local high streets begin their Christmas lights switch on.

Live music then continues from 5pm till 7pm, and there’s face painting and balloon modelling for the children from 10am to 4pm, too. What’s more, if you visit Park Street you’ll find it’s a white Christmas all day, and the novel Bauble Chair on Princess Way offers the perfect spot for a selfie!
